Let me explain in as few words as possible why we are better off outside the EU, why Great Britain deserves its freedom and sovereignty back.

Pythagoras’ Theorem - 24 words.

The Lord’s Prayer - 66 words.

Archimedes’ Principle - 67 words.

The Ten Commandments - 179 words.

The US Declaration of Independence - 1,300 words.

EU regulations on the sale of cabbages - 26,911 words.

I wonder how many people have been deprived of a good lifestyle due to EU bureaucracy?
